Daniel Craig has played James Bond five times, making him one of the greatest Bonds of all time. It’s always been Craig’s signature role. Johnson’s “Knives Out” franchise more times than he’s played Bond? We are set to get three Blanc films from the already greenlit third ‘Knives Out’ film. total film, Johnson has expressed his willingness to continue “as long as the two of us are still having fun, and as long as we can keep creating these truly new experiences each time.”

Based on “Knives Out,” which only gets better with repeat viewings, now “Glass Onion,” Johnson and Craig are in favor of working on as many Benoît Blanc mysteries as possible. correctly recognized that it was time for him to move on as he was getting older playing Bond, but he could play Benoît Blanc for years and years. Never too old to analyze seersucker fashion or armchair crime.

“Glass Onion: Knife Out Mystery”

“Glass Onion” lacks all the zing and freshness of the original, sometimes a little complacent with its social commentary and meta-references, but thanks to Johnson’s crackling dialogue, it’s an impressive production design by Craig. With glittery performances and an all-new cast of possible suspects and/or murder victims, this is bound to be a very smart, consistently funny, crowd-pleasing affair. Onion will hit theaters for a week before hitting Netflix’s homepage just before Christmas.)

“Glass Onion” is set in the early days of the COVID pandemic, primarily on a private Greek island owned by Edward Norton’s Miles Bronn, and apart from an extended setting and a few flashback sequences, there’s probably a lot more. I would never read a review of. Don’t call Miles a tech billionaire like he’s Elon Musk. That’s because Miles is a tech billionaire like Elon Musk. Miles is either a generational genius or an arrogant fool with enormous wealth and global influence (perhaps he has a little bit of both), Each year we host a lavish reunion for our close-knit circle of old friends. When everyone who hung out at a bar called Glass Onion and dreamed of being someone was Nobody. While cinematographer Steve his Yedlin and production design team deliver stunning visuals from the Greek island of Spetses, Miles welcomes guests such as:

  • Connecticut Governor Claire DeBella (Kathryn Hahn) prepares to run for U.S. Senate.
  • Astonishingly ignorant and politically incorrect, Birdie (Kate Hudson) is a former supermodel turned sweatpants mogul. should do it Canceled, Birdie’s patient assistant Peg (Jessica Henwick).

  • Miles’ chief scientist and right-hand man, Lionel (Leslie Odom Jr.), is in a morally contradictory position to carry out Miles’ eccentric vision.
  • Who is the Joe Rogan-esque macho male rights YouTuber called Duke (Dave Bautista), Duke’s bombshell girlfriend Whiskey (Madeline Klein), and daughter Whiskey’s name?
  • Miles’ former business partner, Cassandra (Janelle Monae), actually shows up and surprises everyone, considering Miles forced Cassandra out of the company through ruthless legal means years ago.

It’s not clear who invited him, but Craig’s Benoit Blanc will be with him for the weekend getaway. is planning an elaborate mystery game in which they are “killed” and everyone is a suspect.

Edward Norton plays party host and private island owner, tech billionaire Miles Bronn.

Miles reigns supreme in cartoonishly oversized giant house halls, filled with all sorts of expensive artwork mixed with dozens of crystal sculptures, literally giant glass onions. It features an office on the ground floor. As for Miles’ interactions with his old “friends,” virtually everyone on the island realizes that they have good reason to want to see Miles actually murdered. Before nightfall, there’s likely to be some real bloodshed, with Bran always seeming to be one step behind the killer – or one step ahead of it.

As the plot peels back layer by layer…well, “Glass Onion” reveals itself to be quite corny but pretty tasty halfway through the film, setting the tone for nearly every scene that’s happened up to that point. will change. We get a constant barrage of celebrity cameos, most of them pretty hilarious, and the requirement is to look at the same scene from different angles, as if we were NFL officials in a replay booth. As you’d expect from this cast, the performances are juicy and a lot of fun. Norton leans into the character of a mean billionaire who always thinks he’s the smartest person in the room, but the great Benoit Blanc sits over there, right?
